That four-to-six timeframe means Nkemdiche will definitely some key games for the Rebels and potentially sit out some other ones. Ole Miss travels to Texas two weeks from today. After an off-week, the Rebels have a brutal stretch of four straight SEC contests; road games against Alabama and Auburn and then home to face Texas A&M and LSU.
Bruce Feldman talked to Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and says Freeze is optimistic Nkemdiche can return after the Auburn game.
